I work as an associate, chartered legal executive within the wills, trusts & probate team, with over 12 years’ experience in the field.

I predominately help clients who are elderly and vulnerable, particularly those who are unable to make important decisions for themselves. I’m also a keen equine enthusiast and provide inheritance tax and estate planning advice to clients with agricultural and equestrian assets.

I am a full member of both the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners and the Solicitors for the Elderly.
